Panzerfaust (613) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 3, 2006
UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 Beautiful amber color with sediments and a white head. Aroma is full of fresh malt, fruits, spices and woody touches. Flavor is sweet as other belgian tripels, with hints of cinnamon, apples and honey. Good mouthfeel, medium to full-bodied. Moderate finish with a slightly alcoholic aftertaste. Fine Tripel.

Although this is far from my favourite style this was a very pleasant drinking experience. Poured with a massive head.Once this had reduced what was left was a golden slightly sour tripel with plenty of body.Some slight traces of fruitiness but a very well balanced example of this style.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2005
Cloudy golden beer with a white head, sediment in the bottle. Spicy fruit and yeast in the aroma. A yeasty, zesty, refreshing taste with spice and orangey fruit. Good hoppy finish. Tripels are definitely growing on me.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2005
33cl bottle shared courtesy of TomDecapolis (thanks!). Bottle labeled best before 13/10/06. Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a large sized white head. Aromas of fruits, light spices and yeast. Fruity tasting with some spices. Medium sweet. Lively body that ends in a nice clean and crisp finish.

imdownthepub (11391) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2005
Bottle conditioned, aged 7.5 yrs. Cloudy orange, short lasting head, yeast lumps. The aging has changed this into a smooth rounded caramel, syrupy beer with few of the spicy notes usually found in the fresh samples. A litle cough mixture in the flavour with some clove but otherwise unremarkable.
